Saturn SL Series: , I started having problems with my 2000

Customer Question

I started having problems with my 2000 SL2 Saturn with 1.9L Engine. About a couple weeks ago. I've been having my engine knock violently and shimmy the whole vehicle even shook my seat. When I start my car its fine but about 15-20 mins into my commute it starts to knock and it wont stop then my check engine light comes on. I have a full thing of oil and I use 10-30 Valvoline non-synthetic engine oil. I'm thinking spark plugs. Also it has trouble shifting.

When you say knock, is this a violent noise like an internal engine issue like low oil pressure or is it a rattle from the timing components having issues or is it just a misfire occurring? You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.Thanks Chris
